This badboy is the real deal, I'm blown away so far. I there's a lot of tones in this amp, plus its nice to be able to have the cleans in 100w and gain ch in 50w.
Build quility is very solid and doesn't feel cheap. It looks badass too
This amp has some really nice clean tones, I was using my tele and the brit mode and the gain around 3 oclock and had a nice low gain rockish tone, fat mode does just that and is a nice big fat clean. I can make it stay clean with no breakup which I really like or I can add some dirt. Pickin intro stuff like fade to black sounds beautiful.
I've owned the rectoverb,dual and triple rects and none of them had a clean this good, it also had the tweed mode which is more fender like and the brit is more marshall clean. Channels 1 and 2 are both cleans.
Ch3 and 4 are the gain channels, I only tried vintage and modern on ch3 and modern on ch4. But the first thing I noticed is that its not as buzzy, it has a clearer sounding gain, I also think the feel and pick attack is a little tighter and the lowed doesn't sag as much. Its gonna take me a while to really find all the tones but there's plenty of them.
I have the 6l6 in it now and I'm gonna leave them in for now. I'm glad mesa built this amp because I liked the rectos but always felt they were too buzzy and loose. It seems they fixed some of that. I would say anybody who's looking for a dual or triple should give the roadster a chance. i had a chance to boost it and it takes well to the od9 i use. there alot of lowend on this amp, i use it with my vht cab and it matches up very good with it.

Sweet setup. also the effort of having all the pics and stuff set up like that. you definatly get an A for effort!!
ve never played a roadster, but the roadking head has nice cleans, but the best? no. dragon/cobra's are better.[/quoteat least i´m honest!!!iplay a lot of different amps for different kind of music but Ive never played on a cobra or dragon. hmmmmm
i really like the cobra alot and the roadtser is cool too, i will take a cobra or roadtser over the single,dual and triple rect i used to own, the roadtser is my fav mesa.
